Thanks so much. I have an anorexic, celiac friend with my same food intolerances (gluten/dairy/soy) whom I will send some of these easy recipes. She never learned to cook and needs to learn to prepare lots of nutritious foods in order to gain weight and recover. So I really appreciate your posting these recipes. ;)

PS What can we substitute for soy flour in the Hearty Pumpkin Bread recipe??

burdee - on the substitution, pretty much anything. I'd go with something denser - certainly not rice or potato - but I don't know if more nut flour would be too dense... I'd probably start with nut flour, then bean, then just use more sorgum or quinoa.

Thanks, Tiffany. I'll try increasing the almond flour and maybe more of one of the others you mentioned in the recipe. :)

Sun Dried Tomato Crackers

Ingredients

-----------

1/2 cup millet flour

1/2 cup quinoa flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup amaranth flour

1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

1 tbsp italian seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

water, as needed

garlic salt

*note - the important flours here are the buckwheat and the amaranth. if you don't have the others, you can sub other gluten-free flours, but don't go with ones that are too heavy. brown rice would be a good option.

Directions

----------

0. preheat oven to 300F.

1. dice the sun-dried tomatoes finely.

2. in a large bowl, combine flours and spices, and mix to combine.

3. add the tomatoes and about a quarter cup of water, stir to incorporate all the water.

4. continue mixing and adding water, a teaspoon at a time, until you have a ball of dough - it should be slightly sticky to the touch, but otherwise very solid and not stick to your hands

5. in batches, roll the dough into a thin sheet (1/8th inch or less), and cut into small pieces and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.

6. sprinkle garlic salt on crackers, then put in the oven for 15 minutes.

7. turn crackers over, sprinkle on more garlic salt (patting down to make it stick), and put back in the oven for 10 minutes.

8. eat one while hot, allow the rest to cool and store in a plastic bag.

Fast Shrimp Soup (takes about 1 minute prep time, 20 minutes to cook unattended, and 3 minutes on the end - I make this when I get home late from yoga and want something healthy, high in protein, and easy to make - and that provides leftovers for lunch that can be eaten cold if I want)

Ingredients

-----------

1 box Imagine brand Chicken Broth

1 1lb bag of frozen, precooked shrimp, whatever size you like (you could use raw too, if shelled)

1 bag frozen butternut squash or yams (~12 oz)

a sprinkle of cayanne pepper, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin

3 tbsp sweet rice flour

Directions

----------

1. Dump everything except the sweet rice flour into a pot and put the pot on medium low so it eventually comes to a simmer. Leave for 20 minutes.

2. In a glass, combine the sweet rice flour and a bit of water (around 1/3 cup), stir to combine and then mix into the pot.

3. Stir well, and let simmer for another 3 minutes.

4. Eat!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Kept in the fridge, and covered, they'd probably last two or three weeks at the least, and a few months at the most. (Most of my dressings are rather heavy on the vinegar, which keeps things from growing. ;-) )

    • You're right on the extremes, I'm sitting in a gluten-free food festival right now and still unsure if to eat anything which I guess means I've hit the extreme end of the scale. Seem to be noticing the recovery pattern over the course of 6 weeks or so after a gluten hit. Will be very interesting to see what the blood test readings come out like when I eventually get them done again. And thanks for the good wishes
    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
